Multiple Choice Menu

If I understnad you correct it would look like this in the scripting editor:

 

Multiple Choice Menu: Open a folder
If Variable %T1% = "A"
 Open Folder: c:\blue
End If
If Variable %T1% = "B"
 Open Folder: c:\red
End If
If Variable %T1% = "C"
 Open Folder: c:\green
End If

 

To see what's really going on copy and paste this part into the scripting editor.

 

<MENU2:2:T:01:CenterCenter:Open a folderBlue
Red
Green><IFVAR2:1:01:1:A><MYCOMP:c:\blue><ENDIF><IFVAR2:1:01:1:B><MYCOMP:c:\red><ENDIF><IFVAR2:1:01:1:C><MYCOMP:c:\green><ENDIF>

It looks correct. Another option is to use the Switch/End Switch construct.

 

Multiple Choice Menu: Open a folder
Switch (T1)
 Case: A
   Open Folder: c:\blue
 End Case
 Case: B
   Open Folder: c:\red
 End Case
 Case: C
   Open Folder: c:\green
 End Case
End Switch

----------
<MENU2:2:T:01:CenterCenter:Open a folderBlue
Red
Green><SWITCH:T1><CASE:A><MYCOMP:c:\blue><ENDCASE><CASE:B><MYCOMP:c:\red><ENDCASE><CASE:C><MYCOMP:c:\green><ENDCASE><ENDSWITCH>

In cases like these I don’t see the benefit of the Case command. Unless you have multiple nested conditions it just adds two extra lines. Of course it’s possible I am ignorant to some other benefit to using case in which case I would love to be enlightened. Lord knows I have a lot to learn.
